    On nearly all other boards, if you open most any older threads, including very informative build/instructional/antique picture etc threads that we seemingly all know of, you see a rash of that sickening speedometer extortion image. Photobucket has managed to scar the internet from one end to the other, and who could forgive them for that? My account still works as I am a paying member, but I don't use it anymore and I've already downloaded my photos from it.

    Very nice job, I don't know that I've ever seen another of these built. Monogram also made one in 1:24 scale. Theirs was a bit nicer and fit together more easily.

    How did I miss this? Fantastic in every way. I restored a glue bomb in the '80s, it came out looking very similar to this.

    Used to see it all the time on ebay with real cars. Auctions like a pristine '69 Boss 429 Mustang for $8500 BIN, with the usual BS story; owner overseas on business, car in a different state, must use their shipper and prepay shipping, etc. I always reported them, they always got taken down in minutes, sometimes even seconds, and haven't seen that kind of scammage there for a long time. Anything for a buck.

    Bill,
    I have this kit, but admittedly I didn't look at the engine very closely. You're right, it's kind of a mish-mosh between Poly (A series) and B series, but slanting closer to the B. Why they didn't include the iconic 2nd carb is beyond me, probably the same reason they curved the side trim. The post was mainly to point out that the top engine option in '58 was the new B series, though the Poly soldiered on until 1967, IIRC.

    The engine actually is correct for the car. The new 350 cubic inch Golden Commando was introduced in 1958, and was the top engine option in all Plymouths that year. This was the first incarnation of the B series engine, so they had the familiar shaped 383-440 valve covers, and the front mounted angled distributor. The poly series Dual Fury engine was standard on the '58 Fury.

    Greg, Gimme a resin buck of the Cosma Ray bubble, and we'll see how she vacuforms.

    Beautiful job, the stance and wheel placement are spot on.

    Looks great with the trad wheels and tires. Those Foose body mods really flow.

    Very nice!

    I just down loaded all of my PB albums. Took three hours, a real pain. Even if they take it all back, they are no longer trustworthy. Is there a consensus as to the best replacement hosting site? Imgur? Flickr? Something else?

    At that point, I'll be gone.
